PRM signs £3.1 million Lagos MRF deal at RWM

A £3.1 million deal to supply a materials recycling facility (MRF) to Lagos, Nigeria was signed by recycling equipment specialists PRM Waste Systems (PRM), exactly a year after partners met at RWM06. The company was approached by JT Commodities Management (JTC) to supply and construct a turnkey facility for the Government of Lagos. JTC is helping the Lagos Government to meet regional recycling objectives. PRM will manufacture three bespoke lines and ship them to the new facility in the next three to four months. Then its technical sales manager Ken Welland will manage the 18 month construction and installation process. He will then relocate to Lagos to provide local management and offer advice for future projects. The MRF will process commingled waste from the commercial and hotel area of the city. It will also create 200 local jobs. JTC managing director Julius Vogt said: Recycling and waste management is set to be a major growth area within Nigeria. Having now found the right technical partner we are able to expand our operation. PRM managing director Brian Moore said: Its the companys first time working in Nigeria. Its a unique opportunity for us to expand our operations in this region, and to feel that we are helping to improve the environment for the people of Lagos. JT Commodities are managing the project and we are providing the technical know how.
